- Project Unites Three Universities in Ethnobotany Research Efforts
A unique collaboration between three institutions of higher education is advancing studies of plants in Central Appalachia that will contribute new knowledge to the field of medicine and expand opportunities to cultivate, harvest and market herbal remedies available in the area.
The Appalachian Center for Ethnobotanical Studies (ACES), a collaboration between Frostburg State University, University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute and West Virginia University, is developing a number of projects that support the related ACES missions of studying and preserving Appalachian plants and their related culture and fostering regional economic growth through the sustainable development of the area's natural resources.
